Teaching a Second Language: A Guide for the Student Teacher. Language in Education: Theory and Practice. No. 28.
Knop, Constance K.
This handbook discusses the activities and interactions that student teachers may engage in to meet the problems and goals of student teaching. Section I deals with the observation phase; Section II focuses on the teaching practicum. Within each section, a wide variety of techniques and activities are suggested to provide as many ideas as possible to help student teachers deal with the demands of a given placement. The following topics are covered: (1) developing a working relationship with the cooperating teacher in the observation phase; (2) meeting and interacting with other members of the school community; (3) interacting with the students during the practicum; and (4) utilizing the textbook, making lesson plans, and using supplementary aids and materials. Three appendices include sample letters of expectation, some typical questions asked of the foreign language teacher in the interview at the end of the methods course, and competencies to develop within the school community. A bibliography completes the handbook. (AMH)
